    Walton's Music for Schools Competition 2015

    The annual Waltons Music for Schools Competition is a national competition and celebration of music in Irish schools. The competition awards a total of €10,000 worth of vouchers for musical instruments, accessories, books, music technology or PA equipment from Waltons Music.

    Music groups from twelve Finalist schools will have the opportunity to perform before their peers and distinguished adjudicators in the National Concert Hall on Monday, 11 May 2015!

    To enter your primary or post-primary school in the 2015 Competition, please send, by Friday, 13 February 2015, an entry form, photo and video of a single piece or song, performed by an instrumental, vocal or mixed group from your school (maximum 45 performers), that in some way addresses the Competition theme of ‘Why Music’. It can be in any musical style or combination of styles – classical, popular, traditional, jazz, etc. – and can be performed by any combination of singers or instrumentalists you choose.
